One month after announcing he was dropping out of the race, former presidential candidate Howard Dean made a series of official announcements about his new organization that would be known as "Democracy for America." On March 18, 2004, Governor Dean unveiled his new organization, proposing a strategy for progressive political change in the United States of America. After an initial announcement in Seattle, Howard Dean flew to San Francisco for his second official launch party. This video program documents Howard Dean's full speech in San Francisco, California, with introductions provided by Stephanie Linder and Will Easton, two members of the SF4Dean.com grassroots group. In this speech, Howard Dean reaffirms his commitment to fight for affordable health care, a balanced budget, and supporting Democratic nominee John Kerry in the fight to bring about a more accountable government for the citizens of America.
